Business Success Stories
Since 2010 the Denver Energy Challenge began helping local businesses save energy and money as part of the U.S. Department of Energy's Better Buildings program. In 2013 the program met it's goal of reaching 1,200 businesses and helped them save an average of 18% on their energy use. We are proud to have helped so many businesses save, and we are happy to recognize them for their commitment to energy efficiency! More information can be found on our Facebook page.
The program is now in the process of merging with the city's Certifiably Green Denver to provide not only energy advising but overall sustainability assistance including water, waste and transportation. If your company would like to schedule a free advising visit with Certifiably Green Denver you can call us directly at 720.865.5457 or sign up now to get started.
We've already seen a huge savings. Our June 2012 Xcel bill was $3,000 less then it was in June 2011. - Austin Hardwoods
It was so much nicer this summer. The old lights use to put off so much heat the gallery would get hot and the art work would fade. Now its much more comfortable and we don't have to run the A/C constantly. - Tam O'Neil Fine Arts
“I appreciate all the help given to me on replacement of our old light fixtures. As far as I can tell, we are now saving about $200 a month on the new retrofit fixtures!” – Walter W. Martin
Definitely worth participating in the program. We've been saving about $300 on our energy bill. - Perma Graphics

“We replaced our halogen tracking light with LEDs. The lights installed are fantastic and the city's energy program is a big incentive for people to put in more energy efficient lighting.” – Sanctuary Home
We just looked at our energy bill post-project compared to this time last year and we've already saved $1,000 in the first month. - Ankmar
"Last year we had an energy review of the gallery, studio and workshop space. After implementing the recommended changes and lighting upgrades, we are now seeing a significant reduction in our energy use. This is a great program!!" – Plinth Gallery
We've been working very hard this past year to make our building more energy efficient; there is always room for improvement. So far, we've retrofitted our whole building with energy efficient lighting and upgraded our HVAC system saving us thousands of dollars so far this year. - The Gathering Place
“We had some LED's and ultra-violets retrofitted that made them more energy efficient, saving up to $600. As a business owner, it's great to save energy and have bills that are more affordable. It was great working with the city. It saved us money right away and made us feel better about all our energy usage!" - Cake Crumbs
